100 Greatest Rockabilly Songs

see on mobile
Criteria: - 'Rockabilly' was born in 1954 when Elvis Presley recorded a blues song with a 'country & western' rhythm ("That's All Right"). The instruments in Rockabilly were simple, guitar, stand-up bass, drums, and sometimes piano. The vocals were uptempo, and often included hiccups, stutters, and vocal swoops from falsetto to bass and back. This was quite a change from the standard radio tunes of the time and brought a sense of excitement, rebelliousness, and freedom that teenagers hungered for. By the end of the 1950s the original Rockabilly sound, for the most part, had evolved into mainstream Rock 'n' Roll. This list strives to give the best representation of the Rockabilly sound by consideration of influence, impact, and popularity in the genre of Rockabilly.
